Accurately weigh and mix together all the dry ingredients (except the yeast) and set aside. TIP : weigh into an airtight container and shake vigorously.
Put the pot/sachet of yeast next to the mixed dry ingredients so that it is not forgotten.
Weigh all the wet ingredients into a large bowl and whisk through to combine with a hand whisk.
Bake in the Bread-Maker
Prepare the bread-maker, making sure the paddle is in place.
Transfer the wet ingredients to the bread-maker. (scrape the sides of the mixing bowl with a spatula to make sure all ingredients are fully transferred).
Add the yeast to the dry ingredients and give a quick mix through.
Add the dry ingredients to the bread-maker bowl on top of the wet ingredients.
Set the bread-maker to GF setting (I use 'medium crust') and press 'start'. (See NOTES re optional removing of paddle part-way through cycle).
Enjoy a cup of tea and read a magazine while your bread bakes, enjoying the smell of freshly yeast-baked loaf.
Once baked, remove from the bread-maker and carefully slide/jiggle out sideways to avoid squashing the top. Cool on a wire rack.
Carefully remove the paddle (if stuck inside) once cool.

If using an alternative machine, see main blog post for comparative cycle times.To Avoid a 'Paddle Hole' If you want to avoid a hole at the base-middle of the baked bread when the bread-maker paddle is removed, keep a close eye on the progress of the bread-maker cycle. As soon as it finishes kneading, quickly and carefully scoop the dough to one side of the bread-maker bowl using a spatula or firm wooden/silicone spoon. Remove the paddle from the machine and push the dough back into the centre of the bowl, or spread evenly.
